Stamford Estate agent relocates to new homes site

An estate agency has moved offices to be closer to new development.

Moores Estate Agents, Stamford, has moved from its Sheep Market location to Uffington Road, Stamford. The estate agency, which also has branches in Oakham and Uppingham, has recently been instructed to market the new Wynbrook Homes development, comprised of 28 individually designed homes alongside a retirement village.

Part of the decision to move was dwindling footfall outside the Stamford office, the difficulty parking in the town centre, as well as boulders being placed near the office by South Kesteven District Council to stop cars parking there.

Moores owner  Vernon Moore and the Stamford office director Maria Johnson said they were excited by both the Wynbrook Homes instruction and the move. Vernon said: “The national marketing that we have planned for this development in London and the south-east should have very positive results for the individual, second-hand homes that we are selling.”

Maria added: “In recent years, we have seen less and less local buyers and with over 70 per cent of our buyers coming from out of the area. The reality is that they don’t want to come into town and struggle to find parking to visit us. “Many market-leading agents down south have steadily been moving away from high street premises and as much as we loved the character of our Stamford Office, it wasn’t very practical and footfall was dwindling with increasing parking difficulties and the unsightly bollards around Sheep

 Market. Given the fabulous opportunity for us here at Top Lock Meadows, it made sense for us to be based here. Making finding and visiting us easier, will attract more buyers to Moores and ultimately the properties we are selling – new and old.”

Top Lock Meadows is registered for Help to Buy and offers  part exchange. Prices range from £300,000 upwards. The plots released so far are available to view at www.mooresestateagents.com.
